In addition, photography that will be posted on any public sites that includes staff members of Sofitel or their contractors.


Although guests are permitted to shoot for personal use in the privacy of their room and public areas of the hotel, they must respect the privacy and comfort of other guests in the area, and the privacy of Sofitel staff.


Professional photography and videography will only be permitted if hotel management has given approval and written permission prior to the shoot. Photographers or videographers will be accompanied by a Sofitel representative at all times. All requests for photography and videography will be approved subject to occupancy, availability and type of content.
